Hey baby, what’s your sign? We’re enthralled with the hidden art of astrology and how the stars align with personalities. Just for fun, we’ve put together a reference guide to adding decor for each sun sign. Since this is the month of Libra, we’ll start with this charming sign first. If this isn’t your sign, think of a special person in your life that might enjoy a thoughtful gift instead. We’ll add an installment once a month for each sign, so stay tuned for more!
Libra: September 23 – October 22
Libra’s astrological planet is Venus, which is named after the Goddess of love and beauty. Any good Libra is known for being easy-going, peaceable, and polished. Find a beautiful mirror for them to primp and preen in. They deserve it! Another great idea would be one of our favorite vintage dressing tables. If this is your sign, a vanity is a must! Hang a mirror above a desk for a multi functional space.
One item just will not do! A Libra is also partner-prone, so be sure to purchase items in pairs! If you’re following our Feng Shui guide, take a look at our article on the Love and Relationships center. This is the perfect area to place pairs of items. Add a dose of your sun sign to the place in your home where it will do you the most good.
Maintain a Balance
Libras also like to keep a balance in all things. Ironically, they may have a tendency to go overboard on gold and gaudy or underboard with sparse minimalism. If you’re a Libra, work to find a balance between minimalism and maximalism. Keep things light, but focus on the details. Take a look at our article on floral curtains or some of our tablescape ideas for examples of how to warm up your environment with a light hand.
Quality Over Quantity
Leather goods do not go unappreciated by this attractive sign. Beautiful, hand-crafted leather goods enhance any Libra home. Look for a sturdy leather chair or sofa that is high-quality and soft to the touch. Warm up a leather chair or sofa with a plush, sheepskin Pampa cushion. Remember to purchase in pairs, and two will certainly suffice!
Give Birthday Flowers
Remember, this sun sign is a lover of beauty. Beautiful vases paired with a bouquet of flowers will work to uplift any Libra environment. If you’re getting a gift, try incorporate Asters (for September birthdays) or Marigolds (for October birthdays) to your bouquet. It’s always the thought that counts! The vase or container should compliment the bouquet and also be able to stand on it’s own.
Entertaining With Elegance
Charmers by nature, Libras are perfect hosts. Take advantage of Fall dishware sales and stock up on sets perfect for entertaining. Right now, World Market is having a sale on their Valletta Dinnerware. The beautiful green dinner and salad plates come with matching bowls in sets of 4. Remember to use promo code SHIPFREE for free shipping off all orders of $150 or more. Their scalloped edges and soft colors will delight any Libra with a penchant for elegance.
Our sweetest air sign also has a tendency to become disorganized when off-balance. A Libra home office is the most prone to disorganization, so make sure to have plenty of storage solutions! Take a look at some of our favorite planners for Girl Bosses and party planners, too. Desks should have organizers like the ones in our junk drawer article. Easy, creative solutions will help a Libra’s mind stay free and clear!
